in advocating for 3 key principles:
- Quality Service
- Reduced Environmental Impact
for NYC’s taxi and for-hire vehicle industry.
Sign our Petition to Mayor Bill de Blasio and Members of the Taxi and Limousine Commission.
New Yorkers deserve taxi regulations that make safety the highest priority.
That means every city-regulated taxi and for-hire vehicle should meet all federal crash, safety, and EPA standards even after they’re “hacked–up” for use as a taxi.
NYC should never allow taxi business practices or vehicle modifications such as unsafe partitions or bumper guards that can put passengers, drivers, or New Yorkers outside the vehicle at greater risk.
With so many taxis and for-hire vehicles on our streets, and so many New Yorkers depending on them, we deserve better.
I am joining Cab Riders United in asking you for immediate action to improve the safety, quality of service, and environmental impact of the city’s taxi and for-hire vehicle industry.
